    Broome (special visitors!)

    August 24, 2017 in Australia

    Besides Marley's birthday, we'd all been counting down to Broome because we'd arranged to meet up with Grandma and Grandpa. We had a wonderful few days with them, spent plenty of time at the beach, at their luxury villa, and checked out a few of the sights of Broome.
    We headed to the Courthouse Markets on Saturday morning and enjoyed the Broome Ice Creamery's offerings for morning tea, checked out Chinatown and had a delicious lunch at the Dragonfly Cafe (luckily it was worth the 50 minute wait!). It was a real treat for us all to catch up and the added bonus was the fabulous villa Grandma & Grandpa were staying at - pavilion style and big enough for us to all comfortably fit and it also had its own small pool which the kids made good use of! We enjoyed a few nights of being hosted in a spacious kitchen and eating out on the deck - very nice change from the caravan park!Read more

    Broome (birthday celebrations!)

    August 22, 2017 in Australia

    Marley had been counting down to his birthday since before we left home (!!) and another bonus of not being on the Gibb was that his request for birthday dinner of fish and chips was a bit easier to arrange!
    The much anticipated day finally arrived - there were presents, birthday wishes sent via phone and video from friends and family, pin the tail on the donkey, birthday cake (the order was "chocolate, inside and out"), an afternoon on glorious Cable Beach and we finished with fish and chips at sunset on the sand. One very happy 5 year old declared the day "awesome" and we all agreed!Read more

    Broome (more beach and sunsets!)

    August 21, 2017 in Australia

    There's a positive to every negative and the disappointment of not being able to do the Gibb was soon outweighed by the fact we gained extra days in Broome! We all relished the opportunity to have a swim at the beach - and what a beautiful beach it was! Many hours were spent enjoying the water, relaxing or scratching around in the sand (for the kids!).
    The only thing that can come close to a day at the beach in Broome must be watching a sunset from the same spot! Different every night and always amazing. It was great to sit on the white sand at Cable Beach and watch the sun dip lower but equally spectacular were the colours of the rocky cliffs at Gantheaume Point at the end of the day.Read more

    Broome (again!)

    August 31, 2017 in Australia

    As we left Cape Leveque we decided to visit the Aboriginal community at Lombadina which is only 3km off the main road. We drove down the sandy red road to find a green oasis - lots of shady trees and lush green grass. We dropped in to the office to pay the $10/car entry fee and buy a loaf of the locally baked bread (delicious!) before checking out the historic church with its paperbark ceiling. We'd heard the beach was good so we changed into bathers and started the walk down to the sand - we'd decided it wasn't worth letting the tyres down to drive onto the beach, however we soon realised it was a bit further than we thought! A lovely guy called Bruce who was staying in the cabins saw us heading off and followed us down to offer us a lift which Grandma and Grandpa and Meg gladly accepted. The rest of us continued on foot with a little local dog who joined us for the walk. The walk was definitely worthwhile - the pristine, white sandy beach and crystal clear water was even better than Cape Leveque. We cooled off in the water, beachcombed for some gorgeous shells and the kids had fun playing with their new furry friend! In the meantime, Grandpa got a lift back with Bruce and brought their car back to ferry us all (dog included!) back to the town. Reluctantly we headed off just after noon to make sure we got back to Broome in time to pick up the caravan.
    Our "double-up" habit continued as we returned to Broome and there wasn't much protest when we decided to extend our 2 day stay by another night! We ended up back at Cable Beach Caravan Park but because it was starting to empty out as the grey nomads all began their migration south, we scored the "best site in the park", a huge space on the fence line and right near the pool - perfect!
    We farewelled Grandma & Grandpa with fish and chips on the beach (kids had well and truly had their fix of fish and chips by the time we left Broome!) at sunset and did some not-so-exciting jobs like grocery shopping and car washing in between plenty of swims at the beach and pool. Two of the families that had been on our tag along tour at Kooljaman were staying at the same time so the kids had lots of fun catching up with some new friends.
    We visited the Town Beach Market on Thursday night for dinner (delicious Japanese for Jen, Balinese noodles for Roy and dumplings and pizza for the kids - nice change from fish and chips!!) and Marley bounced around on the jumping castle while Meg and Finn did battle inside the inflatable bouncing balls - almost more fun for the spectators!
    Friday afternoon was spent soaking up the sun for our last few hours on Cable Beach and then we all agreed dinner on the beach one last time was a fitting way to end our Broome experience. We headed to Zander's to get (more!) take away dinner and check out the art installation set up on the grass. Luckily we'd had some amazing low tide sunsets previously because although the sunset itself was spectacular it was quite high tide and really windy! It didn't stop us from enjoying our last Cable Beach outing - and we'll be back...someday!

    Broome

    September 13 in Australia

    Mittags sind wir in Broome gelandet bei tropischen 32 Grad. Die gesamte Gegend ist voller rotem Sand. Wir haben unseren Camper geholt und sind den ersten Campingplatz auf unserer Route angefahren. Der erste Stopp war der Pool zum abkühlen. Später sind wir zum wunderschönen Cable Beach gelaufen der nur ein paar Fußminuten entfernt ist. Um 8 sind wir alle todmüde ins Bett gefallen, der Jetlag lässt grüßen.Read more

    Broome

    May 14 in Australia

    We stayed close to Broome and drove in the morning to Cable Beach for breakfast. It's a really pretty beach but not as spectacular as we expected it to be. Afterwards we went to the Visitor Center and the attached pearl museum which teaches a bit about the pearling beginnings of Broome.
    Later in the afternoon we went to Gantheaume Point a picturesque setting of red rocks and blue water. Besides that are there dinosaur footprints in the rocks which are only visible in low tide. They weren't as big as expected but still interesting. In the evening we went to Cable Beach to watch the impressive sunset.Read more

    Cable Beach

    September 14 in Australia

    Heute stand Kamelreiten auf dem Programm. Gefolgt von einem Picknick am Strand. Wir lieben es hier 😀.

  • Day29

    Cable Beach

    September 26, 2016 in Australia

    Die Auswirkungen des "Oktoberfestbieres" waren zum Glück nicht wie üblich - lag wohl auch an dem Bier 😁

    Wir brachen gestern früh also gleich zum Markt im - nennen wir es mal - Ortskern auf. War echt nett und beflügelt von Iced Coffee und Dumplings spazierten wir noch ins "China Town"-Viertel, wobei hier sonntags beinahe alles geschlossen war.
    Zum Glück gabs verlockende Cafés ☺
    Abends besuchten wir das älteste noch betriebene Open Air Kino der Welt. Es versprühte wirklich den Charme dieser Zeit...Der Film "Bad Moms" eher die heutigen Verhältnisse 😆 Dennoch war er total lustig und können wir jedem nur empfehlen!

    Der Plan für heute war schlicht:
    zu einem der 10 schönsten Strände der Welt und dort bleiben.
    Und der Strand enttäuschte nicht im geringsten!
    Uns fehlten die Worte bei dem Anblick...
    Kaum Leute trotz des tollen Wetters und des Feiertages (the Queen's birthday) machten den Strand sogar noch besser!

    Den Sonnenuntergang anzuschauen war dann ein Muss und ebenfalls unvergleichlich.
